A time margin was given to latecomers subscribers to comply with regulations.
The deadline identifications in accordance with rules prescribed by the Government of Cameroon was set for 30 June. The newspaper Le Jour Edition of 5 July 2016 notes that after the deadline of the campaign to identify mobile subscribers, some clients were indeed disconnected from telephone networks for breaking the rule.
“Customers are beginning to realize that their lines are disabled. We developed a calendar to go to the field to ensure the effectiveness of the measures that have been considered. This descent will also allow us to meet the challenges faced by operators and customers. After this operation we will address a background report to the Honourable Minister of Posts and Telecommunications for further instructions, “said Gabriel Hilaire BIWOLE the Regional Delegate of the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications (MINPOSTEL).
You should know that at the end of the campaign to identify the results will be sent to the Telecommunications Regulatory Agency (ART) for data consolidation. It is after this that the consolidation deactivation operation will take everything up. “ART is currently analyzing the various databases. This will take a few days for us to have a quantified assessment of the campaign. However I can confirm that the lines of some customers are being disabled. This gives me the opportunity to tell the people of the Central Region that identification continues, “added Gabriel Hilaire BIWOLE.
